Many high school students are unaware of careers in public health and that there are many options available for those interested in improving health and preventing disease beyond being a doctor or a nurse. The Rutgers School of Public Health developed PHocus (Public Health: Outbreaks, Communities, and Urban Studies) to introduce high school students to the interdisciplinary field of public health, as well as to promote population and individual health.
